Last Christmas

Last Christmas, little Sarah came downstairs to discover a rather surprising scene. Instead of the piles of perfectly presented gifts spilling out from under the Christmas tree, she found an assembly of abnormal animals playing cards and drinking hard booze.

One of them, a disreputable creature boasting the rear of a kangaroo and the head of a giant anteater, spotted Sarah and threw an empty bottle of high grade whisky in her direction. The precisely-aimed bottle smashed inches above the girl’s head, and had the desired effect of sending her scurrying back to her bedroom.

Fortunately, the card game continued to its conclusion and no mention was made of the incident.
